PCB Software

Multi-CB can handle a variety of data formats for PCB manufacturing. Basically you can always send us ODB++ or Extended Gerber (RS-274X) + drilling data.

For the following printed circuit board software we offer the Gerber export as a free service:

  • EAGLE
  • Target 3001!
  • KiCad
  • Sprint layout

If you use our preferred data format when exporting, you benefit from an increased processing speed and avoid queries.

More information can be found here: PCB data types.

PCB Software Overview

The data from the following printed circuit board software (see column preferred data) is supported by Multi-CB. If your program does not appear in the list, exporting Extended Gerber (RS-274X) + drilling data will always work.
